Drinking Habits
by
Tom Smith

Directed by Tom Wallwork


A hilarious, traditional farce set in the convent of Sisters of Perpetual Sewing. Two reporters go undercover to investigate rumours that wine is secretly being made by the nuns to keep the doors of the convent open. Their turning up coincides with the arrival of a new nun, and the wine making is also a secret from others in the order, so it isn’t long before confusion, paranoia and the wine set in.
